As predicted, median prices were down almost $100,000 to an even $1.9M in May. Pending deals – currently at just under $1.6M – point to a further drop, soon.

Buyers should know Laguna is overpriced, but negotiable. May buyers payed $1M less than current sellers are asking (I call this difference the spread). 78% of all of May’s closings did lower their price. The average price reduction was 5.4%. Keep me in mind if you need a knowledge broker to you negotiate this market.

Sellers should know that Laguna is in a long term up trend. 2016 at $1.8M was a record year. Year to date, we are at $1.925M. The spread – again, the difference between what buyers will pay and what sellers want -- is chronic and is very bullish. It means that we keep going to record highs with buyer’s buying the lower priced properties. Inventory at just over 5 and ½ months is certainly not excessive. I keep saying it, I think these puppies are going way up – no guarantees.

Call me before July 4th, mention this report and I will list your home for 4%. Out of that 4%, I pay the other agent 2.5%. Call me for details.
